CSI: NY: Cancelled or Renewed for Season 10?

CSI NY cancel or renew?Here we go again. Tonight, CBS airs the ninth season finale of CSI: NY. Will the long-running show be cancelled so that it ends up also being the series finale as well?

As with any show, the network has to look at the costs to produce CSI: NY versus the revenue it generates. CSI: NY has been on the air for nearly 200 episodes and so the costs have risen over the years. Unfortunately, the ratings haven’t gone up as well.

In season seven, CSI: NY averaged a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.03 million total viewers. Last season, the show averaged a 1.6 demo rating with 9.94 million. This year, it’s averaged a 1.4 rating with 9.68 million viewers.

Is it worthwhile for the network to keep producing more episodes or should they try something new? They haven’t had any luck launching new dramas on Friday nights — Made in Jersey and A Gifted Man, for example — so trying to replace CSI: NY might be a tricky proposition.

As Gary Sinise recently told Larry King regarding the ninth season renewal, “It was a 50-50 toss-up. We have a good solid show but I know from a business perspective what they’re thinking about, looking at. Has our show run its course? Can they find a new show that’s cheaper to make than ours that can do as well? They have to take a lot into account but we’re a solid show.”

If CSI: NY does return it will be without one castmember. Hill Harper, who’s played Sheldon Hawkes since the show began, is leaving. He’s becoming a series regular on USA’s Covert Affairs drama starting with season four.

What do you think? Has CSI: NY run its course? Should CBS cancel it and replace it with an existing drama or something new? Would you like to see it come back for a 10th year?

    Miss CSI:NY, & I still miss The Unit & JAG. I have no interest in reality tv. CBS has always been my favorite station. Don’t become like NBC & have a lack luster line-up. You know who is home on Friday nights. Oh, I guess we do not matter. If I do not see CSI:NY again, I can always pick up a good book and read me a crime novel.

    Cancelling CSI:NY was a foolish move! With what is being spent on development, marketing and salaries on the shows that CBS had tried to replace it with, they could have continued with a solid, well-loved show! How many failed shows will CBS try to air before they realize that a mistake was made. Also, moving the show to one of the worst times slots, how can you expect viewership to increase?? Bring them back and stop trying the subpar shows you have put in it’s place.

    I know several people who are upset about the cancellation of the show, my husband and I included. The writers of the story didn’t even have a chance to end the show with letting us know what Lindsey and Danny have as their second child. A boy or a girl.
    Just like Walker, the Texas Ranger, the fans were left hanging about the officers private lives.
